In a season chock-full of turmoil, surprise and misfortune, I’ve been most puzzled by the lack of any resemblance of leadership and stability. With fingers being flailed in every which direction, I’ve taken the stance that no one within the organization is without responsibility for what has transpired. While (like many of you) I was pleased with the addition of Dwight Howard with the future in mind, I felt the Steve Nash acquisition would be the absolute key to get the current mix of players working. If you followed my writing prior to the season, you already know my stance on this matter.
